Blind Alley

dir. Olga Koleva

Blind alley is a road movie about getting lost on the way home.A night after the protests in Sofia, two strangers meet and take an aimless road journey through the streets of the city, meanwhile sharing their solitude. The road sign at the end of the path becomes a sign of a hope for both of them.
